coach Brand had sold his home for double the value to a wealthy businessman whose son was admitted to the school and later joined the team.

Jie Zhao, who bought the three-bedroom home and sold it at a steep loss, never lived in it. He sold the home 17th months later.


Harvard fencing coach fired over sale of home to prospect's dad

Harvard University fired fencing coach Peter Brand for violating Harvard’s conflict-of-interest policy, athletic director Bob Scalise said Tuesday.

Brand had sold his home for double the value to a wealthy businessman whose son was admitted to the school and later joined the team. The coach received nearly $1 million in 2016 for his suburban Boston house which was valued at around $550,000, the Boston Globe reported.

Jie Zhao, who bought the three-bedroom home and sold it at a steep loss, never lived in it. He sold the home 17th months later.

Both Jie and Brand have denied any wrongdoing.

Douglas Brooks, Brand’s lawyer, called his client’s termination “unwarranted, and an egregious disservice to a loyal employee.” Brook said Brand is considering legal options.

Brand was the coach of the Harvard fencing team for 14 seasons, recording 306 wins. Since 2005, the team produced nine individual NCAA Champions and won the overall national championship in 2006.
